Presidential Office Building, Taipei

3.7
#11 of 88 in Sightseeing in Taipei
Government Building Tourist Spot
Architecture lovers and politics buffs will enjoy seeing Presidential Office Building--the tallest structure in Taiwan at the time of its construction. Completed in 1919, the building initially acted as the seat of the colonial government. After damage sustained in World War II bombings, Chen Yi restored the edifice to its former glory and it later became the presidential office in 1950. Though the structure faces east, giving it excellent views of Shishou Mountain, visitors can only view it from outside. Stop by to admire the historic building and snap a few photos. Use our Taipei family vacation planner to arrange your visit to Presidential Office Building and other attractions in Taipei.

  • Accidentally going to the Taipei Botanical Garden, has gone in the direction of the Presidential Office. Without a reservation because it was bring your passport and go and try to see if it did. Drinking beverages, baggage inspection and safety check after the other Japanese tourists and groups together, Japan language guide we could see the sanngatsu, but was only on the first floor. There was talk about the outline of building and army, indigenous peoples, etc.. It is very impressive.

  • Will be exhibited every weekday morning. Schedules are subject to HP. I went to visit I went to Taipei. Located opposite. If you looking toward the entrance from Taipei around to the right hand side. Walk 10-15 minutes I. At the entrance show the identity (pasupoototoa). Passing through the baggage check. The building itself is very nice, but somehow, I over look crispy. Because they don't know how to be honest "for you! "And what I didn't. I asked the guide if you are interested in, the better.

  • An impressive building from the Japanese colonial period. Usually, you can enter weekday mornings, however it's also possible to enter during a few select weekends when more of the building is accessible and you can take pictures. Most of what you can look round is a museum, but there's not that much in the way of English explanation.
  • Built during the Japanese colonial time, this building is used to be the governor house of Japanese government. If you look at the building from the top of it, you will see there're two adjacent empty squares. That's the Japanese character "Sun" since "Japan" means the "sunrise land". Fun facts, it also looks like a guy's staring at you. The tower is the face and the the wings are the shoulders. The rumor says it's designed to tell the people to behave cause the government is watching them. If you want to learn more, you can join a free walking tour hosted by TourMeAway to learn more about the history.
  • If you are big history buff, you'll like the place. A lot of the building style and material is unique to from Japanese conolinial Taiwan.
  • A really nice and beautiful building (look at the lights!!). I was there for the annual flag raising on New Year Day, where the president and many patriotic locals will gather, sing the national anthems and wave the flag. A really unique experience.
  • I meet President Tsai Ing-wen ^^
